Loggerhead sea turtles like this one @riverbankszoo are just one of seven sea turtle species you are helping to save by reducing your use of plastic products! Each plastic bag, bottle, or straw you skip is one less that could make its way into the ocean, protecting a species that has travelled our seas for over 100 million years. Like sea turtles around the globe, Atlantic loggerhead turtles play a vital role in marine ecosystems, maintaining the health of coral reefs and seagrass beds. Write in below to let us know how your efforts to reduce your plastic consumption are going! #worldseaturtleweek #loggerhead #seaturtle #planetorplastic #skipthestraw #plasticsreduction #oceanprotector #atlantic #turtle #savetogether #photoark
